Banyen's Description: 

As a great cookbook gets dog-eared with years of use, this comprehensive mindfulness/life-tuning guide could become like the “Be Here Now” of the early 21st Century—but “with legs” for the long haul. With a foreword by the Dalai Lama, Living in Balance is a fully revisioned, expanded, and updated edition of a volume first published in the 1990s.

Joel and Michelle Levey are among the pioneering dharma teachers in the West, bringing “inner technologies” to a wide range of people and organizations across the spectrum of medicine, business, government, religion, and even the military.

“With deep roots in verified evidence-based science, the ancient wisdom traditions and indigenous cultures throughout our world,” Living in Balance shows that, in each moment, we have the capacity to be mindful of whether our thoughts and actions are moving toward harmony and balance or away from it. Through this awareness we can make a conscious choice to continue on the path we are on or to change our attitude and direction. Living in Balance offers a rare synthesis of ancient wisdom traditions with cutting-edge research on peak human performance that points toward mindfulness as being truly the key to living in balance.

How do we learn to recognize early warning signs that we are moving away from balance and what can we do at these time to move back in the direction of harmony and wholeness? What kinds of “pings” and “alerts” can we create and discover to help us wake up, shift gears, and recalibrate?...

 

Some of these challenges and methods are evergreen and universally relevant to being in a human body on planet Earth, and some of them are unique to this particular period of rapid change, glob al interconnectivity, and uncertainty… There are a myriad of principles and practices offered for your consideration and experimentation in this book.

This book is a rich time-release resource which leaders, young people, skeptics, spiritual seekers, parents and family members alike will find to be life-giving and useful in the crafting of beauty and harmony in our lives and in our world.

Our hope is that each person who reads Living in Balance will discover his or her own unique mix, or “play list” of meaningful insights, practices, and ways of living to awaken to greater harmony, wholeness, wisdom, and balance. As each of us comes to live more in balance, we will become less of a troublemaker sharing our confusion and stress with others, and we will become a more tuned-in, empathic, wise, helpful, compassionate, and inspiring presence in the lives of all we touch along The Way.

Living in Balance is the wisest, most practical and inspiring book that I have read in years. This is one book that really does have the power to help you change your life.” — Joan Borysenko, author of Minding the Body, Mending the Mind
